Barack Hussein Obama, along with other leaders of the international community, is pushing and pulling Israel toward decisions by Israeli leaders that will assure the eventuation of the time God's prophetic Word calls "Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7). It is an effort guaranteed to cause all nations involved to be "cut to pieces," according to Zechariah, the Old Testament prophet:
"And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it" (Zechariah 12:3).Any observer of the headlines today, with God's prophetic Word as a prism through which to look in discerning the times, can understand how quickly things are setting up for the Tribulation. No leader is more observably at the helm in steering the world toward the seventieth week of Daniel (Daniel 9:26–27) than the American president. His administration is on the fastest track possible in attempting to force the U.S. into the new world order configuration so long dreamed of by the humanists-elite.
In the seven months since his inauguration, Mr. Obama has moved the country from its envy-of-the-world free-market system; he has gathered under his socialistic wing of control America's banking industry and automobile industry; and he has his eyes set on putting the nation's entire health industry under his absolute authority. Additionally, he is aiming toward as quickly as possible binding America's citizenry under global environmental controls that will forever put Americans under energy prices that will make it impossible to maintain a lifestyle anything like Americans have been used to living. His projected multi-trillion dollar deficits would mortgage the financial futures of American's progeny forever.
Yet, in terms of the dangers presented by these changes this president plans for the U.S., his and the other world leaders' dealings with Israel at present far exceed the insane actions just mentioned.
France demands that Israel stop the building of homes for Jewish citizens in East Jerusalem. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, in letting France's demand be known, said Tuesday, July 21,
"The Israeli ambassador in Washington was summoned and the ambassador in Paris has now been summoned to the Foreign Ministry..."The Obama administration is leading the way for other world leaders to follow in forcing Israeli citizens to give up property in Jerusalem, which God calls the "apple of His eye."
France’s bold move, coupled with increasingly harsh criticism of Israel by Russia, have strengthened U.S. President Barack Obama’s determination to enforce his demands that Israel stop construction for Jews. American officials said that the building activity is a negative factor on negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. Neither the State Department nor the White House has commented whether its demands extend to construction for Arabs...President Obama calls the Jewish settlements illegitimate and demands that the Jews be cleared from East Jerusalem so the Palestinians can be settled there. The approximately three hundred thousand Jewish people living there are the hold-up to getting agreements necessary to move forward with the "Roadmap to Peace" effort. Moving these people will, he avers, make it possible to move forward for a peace he intends to hammer out with the same dazzling speed with which he has tried to bring America into new-world-order compliance.
The apparent restriction on Jews in effect would remove from negotiations the status of eastern Jerusalem, which was restored to the Jewish State in the Six-Day War forty-two years ago. Hundreds of buildings in the area are owned by Jews who were forced to leave their homes under the British Mandate and during the War of Independence in 1948... (Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu, “Worldwide Coalition: Media Putting Israel in Corner,” Israel National News, July 22, 2009).
There is an explosive dynamic building in the matter of America and the rest of the world powers-that-be making demands on Israel.
[Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu told the Cabinet this week that Israel has complete sovereignty over all of Jerusalem and decides issues such as building permits. Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon declared on Tuesday, “Israel will continue to operate in accordance with its vital national interests... Our right to rule and develop Jerusalem is irrefutable" (Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu, “US Policy: Jews in Eastern Jerusalem are Unwanted ‘Settlers,’” Israel National News, July 22, 2009).The opposition to U.S. and international community leaders wanting to bully Israel doesn't end there. Even liberal Likud members like Intelligence Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor, who is one of the most dovish members of the Knesset - having been in favor of giving up the Golan Heights for peace — was irate over the demands.
Meridor proclaims that former President George Bush's informal commitment not to uproot the Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem should be honored. But, Mr. Obama has declared that the agreement was never a formal one, thus does not have to be fulfilled.
In my view, this bit of subterfuge displayed by the Obama administration is but a foreshadowing of things the Jewish leadership — who will ultimately sign the covenant made with death and hell of Isaiah Chapter 28 — can expect. For America and all nations of the world, such luciferically spawned dealings with God's chosen people, in my opinion, constitute a dangerous game of brinkmanship beyond calculation. The result will be Armageddon (Joel 3:2).
